College Statement Against Racism, Bigotry, and Violence

To our students, staff, faculty, and alumni,

The recent killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and many other individuals of color demonstrates significant inequalities and racism that exist within our society. In light of these tragic deaths, the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences confirms its support and empathy for individuals who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC).

The College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences unconditionally condemns racism, bigotry, and violence against BIPOC individuals and asserts that the values intrinsic to diversity, equity, and inclusion are central to the College’s mission and vision.

The College, through its leadership and with its departments, seeks anti-racist frameworks and goals to help BIPOC individuals pursue their education and lives free from violence, discrimination, and fear. We seek to build a community in our College that is inclusive and diverse.
